This theater (not to be confused with the later Franklin Theater (q.v.), called “the temple of motion pictures”, was built in 1914. The architect was Chester H. Miller.
Built specifically for silent films, pipes for the Kimball organ flanked the screen.
It was demolished in 1928 to make way for an extended 15th Street (which at the time only went as far as Franklin Street).
